One of the best tasting tomatoes IMO. Very large yield for an heirloom beefsteak type. I have isolated and saved seed for several years now. Does fine in NW Wisconsin most years. This variety has switched at least two people that I know of away from Brandywine, it can be that good.
80-85 days, indet, potato leaf plants, 10-18 oz slightly flattened pink beefsteaks, occasionally larger, good to very good flavor in my garden.
Family heirloom of Fred Limbaugh of Robinson, PA, raised by his father and grandfather in the 1930's. Correct name really is Potato Top (because that is what Fred and his family called it), but this variety has come to be frequently referred to as Pink Potato Top instead.

This is the most consistently productive and delicious of any pink tomato I've grown! It's been in my garden for several years, but I only this year discovered its real name (the friend I got seeds from called it "Pennsylvania Pink").
